how do you deal with the pain that goes along with a prolapse?

      @HeyReese might I add to this? Obgyn isn't who you should see EVER. A urogyno is the correct person for this. (Or a colorectal surgeon if it is rectum based) they never recommended a hysterectomy but rather mesh to help support because support is no longer there. While you should ALWAYS be fitted for a pessary before determining surgery. However, I have tried them at stage 4 of rectocele, cystocele, uterine prolapse, and rectal prolapse and it made it WORSE. So I agree pessary are good but they aren't a solution, it is a bandaid for symptoms (for most)

      Not really sure heard like 3 different theories so I'm going to mercy on the 16th and hopefully the 4th theory will actually help me not cover it up

      This sounds a lot like my story, but having an autoimmune disorder & not being able to take birth control, they are being more cautious with me. What stage prolapse?

      I've had 3 different doctors say something like both a sling and hysterectomy and possibly removing one painful ovary

      Ummm. No (not to you, but no to the only latex option). What type of surgery is your obgyn suggesting? Let me guess— hysterectomy? Okay. And how is that going to help if you have a rectal or bladder prolapse? Do you have a pelvic floor specialist (not your OBGYN)? Get a 2nd & 3rd opinion. My pessary is made of silicone & you have to be fitted for it

        @HeyReese there not an option only found some that are latex which won't work. Obgyn says possible surgery 😳
